Hello, ...I am an intergrative therapist trained in Transactional Analysis and Gestalt models with Humanistic Person Centred as my core modality.
During my life I have known physical and psychological pain, this is what led me to train as a counsellor, and my past informs my empathic responses. I can offer you a safe, non judgemental and confidential space where you can explore what is going on for you and find your answers at your pace. I offer face to face, Online and telephone sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a CPCAB diploma in therapeutic counselling.
During my time as a counsellor I have worked for two and a half years with the Parenting Project charity within Warwickshire and have helped clients with life issues such as: anxiety, stress, physical and emotional abuse, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss, feelings of shame and guilt, depression and low mood, panic attacks, relationship and family issues and trauma.
It can seem scary making the decision to start the counselling journey, but I will be beside you as you explore what has been troubling you.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
